To his credit, it was Frenchman Claude LeRoy, the self-professed “White witch doctor” of African football, who introduced Weah to his compatriot Arsene Wenger, then Manager of Monaco in 1988. With all his contributions to football one would expect Weah to claim a bragging right to the leadership of Liberia’s Football Association. Like Weah, Liberia is a country of several firsts.

By their comportment, Liberia’s political class whether Natives or Americo-Liberians are complicit in the country’s sorry state.
